Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

Going along with the pumpkin theme this week (and to use up the rest of the can of pureed pumpkin that I opened for the cookies) I made this delicious pumpkin oatmeal this morning. It’s so tasty and warming, definitely not any boring old oatmeal!

{serves 1}

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tsp Vega Protein Powder (vanilla)
  • 1/2 tbsp almond butter
  1. bring 1/2 cup oats and 3/4 cups water to a boil then turn down to a simmer, let oats soak up some liquid then add pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and protein powder and stir to combine
  2. top with a blob of almond butter and maybe a little more cinnamon and dig in!

Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie

Making Pumpkin Spice stuff always reminds me of college. Not just because PSL are so often associated with college girls but because it was in my college years at Cal Poly that I started experimenting with pumpkin pie spice in recipes. There’s something about it that’s just soo comforting. It reminds me of Fall, the start of the new school year, and being so inspired in such a fun time of my life. What memories does it bring up for you? This smoothie is pretty healthy and not too sweet.

{makes 1 smoothie}

  • 1 scoop Vega Vanilla Protein Powder (a little less)
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • sprinkle hemp seeds (optional)
  1. blend first 6 ingredients in a blender
  2. pour into a cup and top with hemp seeds and maybe a little more cinnamon
  3. enjoy!
